Treasure Island

Richard Brautigan

(January 30, 1935 – September 14, 1984 / Tacoma, Washington)

Discovery


The petals of the vagina unfold
like Christofer Columbus
taking off his shoes.

Is there anything more beautiful
than the bow of a ship
touching a new world?

    Now this is my first Richard Brautigan on this site and I chose it because of the title! And what a wonderful surprise to find erotica at it's best here? Tasteful and sublime. To answer his question....

    There is nothing more
    beautiful than dropping his
    anchor deep in her bay. (Report) Reply
